We had the Chef choice, the food was excellent! The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the food and wine.

This restaurant takes 4 USD for an extra plate for all shared plates! It's a first for us, disgusting if you ask me. So, if they ask if you want plates for the starters, say no. Water from the tap is also expensive (if you...don't order wine), so drink something that is worth it. Garlic bread is crispy thin bruscetta, not the usual soft and crispy type. Pizzas were okay. Quattro Stagioni was weird, but tasted very good. My pizza was also a bit weird, but okay. I think this is supposed to be a genuine Italian restaurant, but after years in Italy I'm not so sure, still it's okay, but very expensive.More

Some of the best italian (with a twist) food I have had. There is an option of taking a surprise menu. You can easily do that. If there is something you dont like, just say it and it wont be part of the menu. Good...Wine pairing as well. The service is the gem of the place. Friendly, homely and very observant without being in your face all the timeMore

The evening meal was part of my birthday present. We decided to have the 3 course meal as created by the cheff. The starter was a chicken breast covered with letuce and garnished with thin shavings of white truffle. Excellent. Main course was slow cooked...neck of lamb accompanied by potato grattin, both excellent, the meat so tender, no need for knive. I was disappointed that we were served only two servings between the three of us. This is the reason I can only rate the experience as Four. When our server came to see how we are doing, I dit tell him about the potatos and he offered to get more but said it would be about 8 minutes. That was 8 minutes to late. The wine menue is quite pricy but glass size makes up for it. Excellent quality, friendly service and good ambience, but for the potatos.More

A nice big serving of pappardelle and polpette - the polpette were tender and tasty, almost as good as my zia's. Good value for money. Complimenti to the chef. Would recommend.

Impressive! This was my first, but not last, visit to La Locanda. The restaurant is nicely decorated and authentic in its expression. We had a table that overlooked the kitchen and I learned being able to see your meal being prepared adds something positive to...the experience. The food was perfectly cooked, lovely presented on the plate and the servers did a great job of presenting the food. Had the Chicken Salas with Horseradish foam and the risotto with white asparagus and both were excellent. Portion sizes were just right. Everyone at the table agreed that this was some of the best Italian we had ever had, even the guy married to an Italian!More

I thought I have been to all in restaurants in Aalborg but I was wrong. Bit of a gem. Welcome was great. Back yard is so Italien. ✔️tick. Now the dishes. Risotto, dish of our choice. Probably the best we ever had. As soon my...partner started, she said I can not compete. She was absolutely on the money. Thats two ticks✔️✔️. We chose the cheapest white wine on the menue and again superb. One more tick.✔️✔️✔️ As for dessert, only two choices, we tried both and could not decide which was better. ✔️✔️✔️✔️Tick. Service faultless. ✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️ And for me when you visit restroom and see white towels rolled up next to sink, sign of class, just like rest of the place. A true gem in middle of Aalborg. ✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️More

The food here is excellent with unexpected combinations of flavors. The portions and presentations are “nouveau”, smallish and finely presented. The presentations are the “fussy” part. It will appeal to many, but not all. The tastes very good.

Yesterday, as many times before, my husband and I visited La Locanda in Aalborg. We have been there many times since the restaurant opened – and indeed we will keep on coming along to enjoy what we would call an “honest meal made with great...creativity and Italian love”. We have had dinner at many, many - both Danish and European (particularly Italian) - restaurants throughout the years. So the following is written with a great deal of happy experience in the stomach :-) We always get back to La Locanda – not only because the food is outstanding; even compared to the finest Roman restaurants. Many hign-end restaurants, recent years, have changed their meals to “bits of taste”. Nothing wrong with that – but bits of taste are not meals. They are “bits of taste” and nothing else. At La Locanda, they haven’t forgotten what a “real meal” means: A real meal is meant to bring people together in joy, cosy happiness and gratitude; and indeed this is what the Italian chef and owner, Carlo Liberati, at La Locanda is mastering most beautifully. Now, La Locanda’s meals, while they are “real”, are as well as sophisticated and creative – and beautiful to look at – as the finest “starry bits of taste” at restaurants both in Denmark and abroad. In addition, I would underline: At La Locanda, there is always something new at the menu. You never get bored with their menu. They have their specials always ready, but besides from those, they change the menu about every month – mirroring, and honoring - the freshness of the season’s ingredients. Finally, at La Locanda, they bring together real meals and great Italian wines in a most elegant way. La Locanda is blessed with one of the finest sommeliers in Europe, Mariarita Liberati, who never fails to bring you a wine that accompany, underline and enhance your Italian meal in a classy, yet always surprising way. Our finest recommendations to Carlo & Lida + Mariarita and all the professional, yet relaxed and friendly staff. Jens and Bente MariaMore
